Perform high performance testing on servers and websites using JMeter 3
Are you are a developer, quality assurance engineer, tester, or test manager who is looking for a firm grip towards scripting and testing concepts using Apache JMeter 3? If yes, this Learning Path is for you.
JMeter software is a pure Java application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It is used to simulate a heavy load on server to test its strength and to analyze its overall performance under different load types.
Extensive documentation and support to build test plans. In-depth and robust reporting. Free and flexible.
With regard to JMeter, we have the above-mentioned features to our advantage.
One Tool Fits All
This can be aptly implied to JMeter which serves the purpose of scripting as well as testing.
This Learning Path starts with a brief on JMeter and its installation. You will understand and learn how JMeter can be used to check the performance of any web-based application. Then, you will understand the elements of a test plan and will create test plans for performance testing. You will also learn basic scripting features of JMeter such as installation, configuration, script creation, validation, test execution, and monitoring which will help you in using this tool independently for performing testing activities. Further, you will perform different types of performance tests such as load, stress, endurance, and capacity with different concurrency. Next, you will learn monitoring the hardware performance of servers using counters like CPU, Memory, Disk I/O, and Network I/O. Finally, you will understand the performance metrics such as response time, transactions per hour, throughput, and error rate by analyzing the test reports provided by JMeter.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will have a strong understanding of JMeter's capabilities, how to run custom load and performance tests, and learn best practices using it.
